Resort Guides - Los Gigantos


Los Gigantos

Los Gigantos, on the west coast of Tenerife, is very popular with British tourists. It is a pleasantly relaxed, purpose built resort where life is lived at a gentle pace; an ideal choice for winding down and replenishing reserves. It is so named because of the three hundred metre cliffs that are the imposing southern face of the Teno Mountains. Los Gigantos has only a small volcanic beach but it does have lidos with sun loungers and refreshing swimming pools. The main focus in the resort is the modern marina and the busy harbour. A range of water sports are available and these include scuba diving, wind surfing and sailing. The waters off Los Gigantos offer great opportunities for dolphin and whale watching. Deep sea fishing excursions can be taken from the harbour. Enjoy an exciting day catching such large specimens as shark, blue marlin and tuna. All the catch is returned to the sea after recording the event on camera. Attractions in the locality include a water park, a bird park, and a golf course.

A popular excursion is the cable car ride to the top of Mount Teide, from where the panoramic views are stunning.
